that will george w. bush got in the past. you're seeing that in some of the analysis that conservatives are giving of the romney campaign. we're being far more honest about romney than we were about bush. if you were the romney campaign, i'd say i will release my paper trail when the president relations his. where is his college transcripts? where is all the transparency what he did before he was in the illinois state sneempl are you kidding me. >>> margie, you believe that that is a fair equation here on one breath, you say that governor romney needs to be more transpare transparent. he is running for the highest office in is this country. the american people need to know more about his tax returns and you are saying this. aim not saying this. this is what you're saying but you want to flip the corner and then bring up the president's college transcript. that's your -- >> the reason -- i don't really. >> those things are equal here? >> the reason why is because i frankly don't trust -- this whole thing about his tax returns i think for democrats is a red herring. this is about transparent say. th

as the jeremiah wright candidate and george w. bush didn't run on his service in the national guard. but romney is a one trick pony. the only calling card he has for the presidency is his time in business." has his chief asset, that meaning governor romney, now turned into a liability? >> clearly, the liability in the last 48 hours. i disagree with my friend, david corn, because i think romney can put this behind him. my hope is at 6:00 tonight he will put it behind. his surrogates and his campaign, he can answer questions satisfactory to the american people. i think once that's done, then obama has no way to go to retread it. this narrative that obama wants is fit for them. most voters may not care about this. they want to know that whoever their next president is does have a real plan for prosperity, a real plan to return jobs and all of this other stuff is sort of a sideshow. the president has been successful in kwee ating a big question mark about romney on this issue. all he has to do is have the question mark at the margins in a few swing states. what romney's job is to do, barack obama h
can always blame the staff. of course, there might be personal reticence on his part. george h.w. bush was famously averse to using the i-word. there may be a little of that. it might be that the republicans put the white house on the defensive. you remember when he made the call on osama bin laden and announced that we had gotten bin laden in a low key kind of way. the republicans immediately jumped on him and accused him of taking a victory lap and doing unseemly things and politicizing. it might be that the media is not giving him enough credit for telling the story that he has told. i don't disagree that he hasn't done a good enough job but not enough credit for telling a story. when the president comes out and says we passed this bill and here are a lot of the good things it's going to do, it doesn't make the news the way the president is a communist and he's going to give us death panels -- and by the way i'm wearing a funny hat. that tends to lead the news. >> steve mcmahon, he did a good job telling stories in 2008 and seems to have lost the mojo on substantive matters. let's g
